I am looking up to Jesus

Representative Text

1 I am looking up to Jesus, simply trusting in his name,
I am resting on His promises divine;
Oh, I love to sing his praises, and his wondrous work proclaim,
What a joy it is to call this Savior mine!

What a blessed Friend divine, oh, ‘tis joy to call him mine,
Thro’ faith in the all-atoning blood;
Praise the Lord of Hosts above, he has crowned me with his love,
And has washed me in the purifying flood.

2 I am looking up to Jesus, as the Life, the Truth, the Way,
He will help me when the pow’rs of sin assail;
He will keep my feet from falling, he will never let me stray,
If I trust in him, his grace will never fail. [Refrain]

3 I am looking up to Jesus, on his blessed name I’ll call,
And his pard’ning love my hope and stay shall be;
I will serve him, gladly serve him, and will trust him with my all,
For this precious Friend is ev’rything to me! [Refrain]
